GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- The Cardinals sacked Cam Newton seven times, once for a safety, and intercepted him on three occasions to overcome a sluggish offensive performance and beat the Panthers 22-6 on Sunday. Daryl Washington, back after serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, had two sacks and an interception for Arizona (3-2). Calais Campbell had two sacks, one for the Cardinals' first regular-season safety in nine years and the other forcing a game-clinching fumble. Karlos Dansby also had two sacks and an interception. The Panthers (1-3), playing for the first time since a 38-0 victory over the Giants two weeks ago, managed only Graham Gano's field goals of 22 and 51 yards. Arizona's Carson Palmer threw for a touchdown but was intercepted three times.
